Meghan McCain argued on Bernie-Warren : 'I don't want another misogynist as president'

McCain, meanwhile, insisted that this is a big story because Sanders “hurt Hillary Clinton so much in the last election.”
She went on to say that while Sanders has a “good reputation” in Washington and is known as being congenial, “his supporters have a bad reputation—meaning the ‘Bernie bros.’”
“It’s actually one of the few things that really connects liberal pundits and conservative female pundits together is just a level of misogyny—look at Twitter, and some of the accounts they do—directed towards specifically women, women in politics, and women in political commentary,” she continued. “I’m sure I’ll have my Twitter lit up on fire because of this, but he has a problem with women.”
As the other women at the table agreed with her, McCain added that Sanders has had that problem for a “long time” while noting that “all’s fair in love and war” when it comes to Warren’s team likely dropping this story now.
“I don’t want another misogynist as president,” the conservative host proclaimed to applause. “Women in this country are sick of it, and I have always thought he has had a problem with women.”

Her comments came after Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., claimed that Sanders disagreed with her contention that a woman could win the presidency. Sanders called the accusation "ludicrous."
"It is ludicrous to believe that at the same meeting where Elizabeth Warren told me she was going to run for president, I would tell her that a woman couldn’t win," he said.
But some of "The View" hosts thought Sanders could do better in his relationship with women. Co-host Abby Huntsman referenced an episode of "Real Time with Bill Maher," where she and Sanders appeared on a panel.
"He basically didn't even realize I was sitting there or existed," she said. She added that she had to eventually move Sanders' hand away from her face.
"Do I think he's purposefully trying to make people feel bad? No, but it looks bad. And I think over time, it becomes a narrative," Huntsman said.
Co-host Joy Behar suggested that Sanders' alleged conversation wasn't a big deal.
"I don't see why this is big news," she said, arguing that everyone has conversations about whether a woman can win.
